a friend who is single and has no male relative said she had difficulties to pay the zakat fitrah since last year. she went to the masjid to pay, but the amil didn't stay back to collect the zakat fitrah. she said she went to the religious office but there's no amil in-charge too. she said she is so shy to wait and call the amil in the masjid like what she did last year..so i suggested she come and pay the zakat to my uncle an amil here in my area. i'll accompany her to see my uncle one of these days..i hope i am doing the right thing.
